Today we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science! #IDWGS2020 International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on 11 February, recognises the important role women and girls play in science and technology. With that in mind, we asked some of our third-year students to tell us what science means to them. Here's Faye – 2nd year medical student. She said: "More women than ever are entering medical school, however fewer are reaching higher speciality training in areas like surgery. There’s a perception that it’s impossible to pursue a career in surgery and raise a family. Last year we held a Women in Surgery discussion panel at the Medical School, to address the misconceptions and highlight how these careers are well within our reach. We got to be in the presence of ten successful female surgeons/trainees who empowered us and made us realise we should never let our gender stop us achieving our goals. My photo was taken following the event with two female doctors who had just been accepted onto surgical training (I’m on the left!)." #ARUPROUD! #WomenInScienceDay #WomeninSTEM #ARUMedicine #angliaruskin #medicalstudents #studyingmedicine #womeninsciences #dayofwomeninscience #ARUchelmsford
